He may be dating Selena Gomez but it’s no secret that teeny pop star Justin Bieber has a major crush on our geordy lass Cheryl Cole.
After turning up on last years X Factor to promote his latest single the young star made an embarrassing fool of himself by winking and telling the judge to call him live on air.
A whole year on and Justin’s wish of getting close to Cheryl may finally have come true…
OK, so the 28-year-old nations sweetheart isn’t running off to elope with the teenager, but she is willing to to do the next best thing – a duet!
The Girls Aloud singer turned judge turned actress, is under the guidance of pal and manager Black Eyed Peas Will.i.am.
Desperate to break the US Cheryl is currently working on her new album over there – and Justin, 17, is keen to get involved…
‘Cheryl’s beyond excited about her new album and Bieber’s team are deep in talks with hers to make a hit,’ a source spills to the Daily Mirror.
‘They already see Cheryl and Will.i.am as part of the family. Will’s got a vision for her album, and now the biggest and the best names are keen to be part of it.’
Earlier this week the busy star took time out to watch Justin’s biopic. Caught up in his story the star was prompted to tweet her respect to Scooter Braun – the man who discovered the youngster.
‘I know I’m a bit late in the day but I have just watched @justinbieber Never Say Never..’ Cheryl, 28, Tweeted.,
‘..It confirmed everything I always thought.. This kid was born a star!! @scooterbraun I salute you :*.’
Pleased to hear Justin has got got his hook into yet another celeb fan, his agent Scooter was quick to tweet back: ‘@cherylcole thank you. took you long enough i will tell the kid. sure it will make his day. cheers.’
